Veterans Day Program

WWI Anniversary LogoThe City of Waterloo, along with the Waterloo School District, VFW, American Legion and Waterloo Park District honor our veterans each year with a special program. This Veterans Day, our program will highlight World War I, as 2017 marks 100 years since the U.S. entered the war. Therefore, we would like to locate any descendant of World War I Veterans. If you know a descendant, please contact Mayor Smith.

Special Census Underway

The City of Waterloo’s Special Census has begun. Special Census enumerators are contacting residents at their homes to conduct interviews. The City is asking to please cooperate by taking the short interview (approx. 10 minutes). Updating Waterloo’s population means the City will see an increase in federal and state revenue to help fund public services. Most of the areas that will be counted in the Special Census include neighborhoods that have seen the most growth. Check the document below for a complete list of those areas. If you live in or near these subdivisions, it is very important that you participate.

Excess Flow Valve Notification

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administrations has issued a new regulation that requires the City of Waterloo to offer an Excess Flow Valve (EFV) to its customers. An EFV is an optional safety device that can be installed on a natural gas service line to reduce the risk of a release of natural gas caused by excavation damage. The cost of installation will be the property owner’s responsibility. You can find more information in the document provided here:
